Santanico: A Fictional Narrative

Good Essays

They continue to hold the reader’s attention with the vivid descriptions of the Santa Ana when he talks about trying…

Within each of these categories is a number of stages common to the plots of all hero-quest stories, and can be compared to Daniel Suelo's adventure throughout his life. According to the book The Hero with a Thousand Faces, the first move of the journey is departure which starts with the call to adventure. The call of adventure is how the journey starts and with Daniel Suelo it starts with him leaving the last of his money in a telephone booth and going for the adventure (accepting the call to adventure), so there is no direct indication of a call of adventure but leaving behind the money is probably the closest.…
